Monument Academy Technology Philosophy
At Monument Academy we believe the integration of technology into our classical curriculum serves to support and enhance our students’ learning. We are purposeful and careful in our planning and understand that it is not about the technology itself but rather how we use it to enrich the learning process. Our program allows us to put educational materials from a variety of sources into every student’s hands and support significant components of learning: active engagement, group participation, multiple ways to learn, frequent feedback and reinforcement, and connection to experts in the real-world. The use of technology as a learning tool helps our students to take responsibility for their learning and to become creators and critical thinkers. We work to ensure that our students know how and when to use technology and are able to use these tools safely and wisely. It is our goal to provide our students access to appropriate technology tools as they progress academically in the classroom and to inspire and prepare them for their future in our modern world.

Canvas Parent Account Information
We highly recommend creating accounts and adding students on the website. It will all work on the app once it is set up, but account creation and setup is difficult and not always possible on the app.
Once you have created an account, you will receive a confirmation email from Instructure. Follow these steps to finish the registration process:
- Log into the Canvas website on a desktop.
- Open the confirmation email on the same desktop.
- Click the link to finish registration.
Securly Parent Portal
Starting in the 2018-19 school year, we will be opening the Securly Parent Portal for parents of Middle School students to view their student’s online activity.
